Floronic Man
Real Name: Jason Woodrue
Search for 'Floronic Man' on Amazon

Controls plant growth, on a virtually limitless scale.

The Floronic Man is scientist Jason Woodrue, a character in the DC Comics universe. His most famous appearance is in the Swamp Thing comic by Alan Moore.

A bio-chemical mishap has turned Woodure into a plant/human creature, similar to the titular 'Swamp Thing' but a darker figure and probably insane. He rants about the damage done to the plant world by humanity, and attempts to take revenge for this. His grandest attempt at this is using his newly gained innate plant control power to make them produce an excess of oxygen so the slightest spark could cause devastating fires around the world. However, he was foiled when the Swamp Thing pointed out that this attempt was in fact devastating the plants since killing all the oxygen breathers would mean cutting off the production of carbon dioxide that plants need to live.

He fights the Atom on several occasions and was a member of one of the incarnations of the Injustice Gang.

The Floronic Man was briefly a hero, after the events of Millennium led to him becoming a member of the New Guardians. After the death of most of his teammates, he seems to have reverted to his original status as a villain.

The character has appeared in various other comics and storylines: in a recent issue of Batman he was killed after assassins shot him repeatedly with bullets, although this is in direct contrast to his most famous appearance, in which he pointed out that "you can't kill a vegetable by shooting it through the head". He is one of the many villains who was mind-wiped by the Justice League of America, but he has since recovered those memories.
